Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse offers unforgettable meals in an equally unforgettable atmosphere. Our guests enjoy the Italian-themed music with plenty of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack; the caricatures on the walls; the big-city feel; and the warmth of the wood-paneled dining rooms. Above all, they love the feast for all of their senses provided by our 24 oz. signature Delmonico steak.

We also serve homemade Italian specialties, including pasta, seafood dishes, bruschetta, garlic bread, salads, chicken dishes, and cannoli, as well as a great selection of wines.

The restaurant was quite due to the virus, which made it even better for us, service and food = excellent, a wonderful anniversary experience.

Service was good. Both our steaks were over cooked. We ordered them both medium well, which in our experience would be a bit pink in the middle. Steaks we received were more like well done! Pasta was over cooked.

Salad was a la carte which seems a bit much for the price of the meals.

It’s not the place we went to years ago. It’s way overpriced for lower quality. The staff was talking about getting out and getting drunk, except for the lady that had mono. Our appetizer never came, my first steak was grizzly and the replacement had Cabernet sauce on it, which was against my allergy request, so I had a reaction. Your bathroom was nice and clean when I was throwing it up. My boyfriend’s dinner was not anything special. He felt the steak was blah and the mushrooms were too full of butter to eat (3.99 wasted, but not upset with him) The pasta was too disgusting for him to eat and he’s not usually picky with pasta. They never sang to him for his bday either. We have no intention of ever coming back and we are unrecommending this place to everyone we know. I’m a sub teacher, so I know a lot of people.

Had a reservation and was still told the wait would be 20 min or so. There was a huge delay in getting our food. It took about an hour and 15 min to get our food.

Found out the kitchen was backed up which was also the reason they were giving wait times even with reservations.

The food however, was delicious and worth the wait. Our waitress Sophie was fantastic. In fact, the entire staff was hustling.

I recommend the place for sure, just maybe try a weeknight and not a busy Saturday night.

My signature Delmonico steak was tough, full of grizzle and tasteless. Way over priced. I have eaten at other "chain steakhouses" for about a third of the price and much better food. The wilted salad and luke warm mashed potatoes were the best part of the meal and they cost extra. Since this was a two hour trip from my house, I won't make that mistake again. I should have sent it back but based on the service, I just decided to not prolong the ordeal.

Arrived at 8:00 for a reservation at 8:15pm, so went to the bar for a drink. Stood there for 15 minutes with my wallet out, and bartender paid zero attention to me as she served people around the bar. On top of that, we didn’t get seated until 8:40 w/ a reservation at 8:15. When service is bad from the beginning at the bar, the food and table service better be exceptional. Service is key. Before I went to Rochester, a friend from NY nicknamed the city “Rottenchester”. This restaurant justifies my friend’s comment.

The food and service were wonderful. However, we booked our table for 5:30 and weren’t seated until almost 6:30. So many people were crowded into one little area. A waiter dropped a glass of wine and the glass and wine went all over a little girl waiting to be seated.

Took my Mom out to dinner at Delmonico's and everything was wonderful. Service and food were both excellent, and the portion sizes were more than adequate. Our server recommended several items off the menu and she was very attentive.
Highly recommend!

Our salmon was not as we would have expected. I would recommend another entree. One of us had chicken marsala, which he loved. Overall, it was a pleasant place. I wish I had ordered beef!!

Food was very good as usual; however, service was lacking and the restaurant was very cold and magnified when guests opened the door and cold air blew into the restaurant. We were seated a great distance from the door but still were blasted by the outside air.

Our waitress was rather inattentive and failed to bring the salad I had ordered. When she brought out out meals she said I’ll get your salad, I said no need now that our meals had arrived. She didn’t offer any words of consolation other than a quick, sorry and as she was ready to walk away I had to ask for the bread that she was supposed to have brought when we arrived.

Felt very unattended to.

Delmonicos is my favorite restaurant but on this occasion the fettuccine pasta was all clumped together and disappointing.

Excellent experience from the moment we walked in the doors to the moment we left! Friendly staff throughout our visit, all in our party shared that their entrees were exceptional from a salad, to pasta, to steaks. We loved the ambiance of our table which was tucked into a nook with a curtain for privacy! Thank you to all staff at Delmonicos for an awesome evening!!!

The food was good and had the NY strip steak. It was a good size and done the way I wanted it. The only problem was that it did not come with a salad. Most other restaurants include the salad with the dinner. It was some what pricey for what you received.

My son wanted Chicken Parmesan, which wasn't listed on the menu. Was pleased that the server told us that it is always offered! Fried Calamari was light and delicious, seafood was cooked perfectly. Portions were appropriate.

For the holidays, I decided to take the guys at work out for a nice lunch. I'd passed by Delmonicos a few times and decided to give it a try.

We started by ordering the garlic cheese bread -- which ended up be taken off of our check by the waitress (a very nice gesture that we appreciated) because it took too long. It wasn't really worth the wait though, as it was not completely cooked and somewhat average.

For our meals, we all did much better. Two of us order Filet Mignon and two had Sliced Sirloin. The meat was cooked perfectly and the sides were generous. I'm a bit of a steak snob, frequently visiting top places in NYC and Philadelphia, so I can say these steaks were "good" and mean it as a complement. But, this is not a 5-star steak experience if that's what you're looking for.

The waitress was really great, which made for an entertaining lunch. And all told, we left full and happy. I would definitely recommend this place for a good quality steak at a local place, without the high prices and fancy trimmings.

Delmonicos' food is consistently good; plentiful and reasonably priced. Service is great; Noise level is a little too high with all open rooms and typically large parties. They do have private rooms for small groups which is great for a family meal.

I brought my husband for his 73rd birthday dinner and it was the perfect place. This was our first time and our server was very friendly and very attentive to our needs. My husband enjoyed the 24 oz rib eye steak and my veal parmesean was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back again.
